App Store Description

The most popular bedtime story on the App Store! Over 6 million downloads.

„App of Year“ awarded by Apple!

"Nighty Night!" is the perfect App for a daily go-to-sleep ritual with cute animals, sweet lullaby music and great narration. All around the house the lights go out, and in the barn even the animals are tired. But who puts them to bed? Who turns out the lights in their stalls? That is the task for small children aged 1-4. Watching all the animals go to sleep is a lovely way to set the mood for bedtime.

"You feel as if you are playing inside of a beautifully animated movie." // USA TODAY / 4 stars out of 4

2. Illustration and animation in 2D
3. Thirteen interactive animals (Dog, Pig, Sheep, Duck, Cow, Fish, Chicken, Pony, Spider, Goat, Cats, Rabbit etc.)
